Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund supports military families at Fisher House

 

The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund has made a generous donation to support Fisher House, the home away from home for military patients and their families at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

The £10,000 donation made by the RAF Benevolent Fund will help Fisher House to continue offering free accommodation to military patients and their families whilst they are receiving treatment at the hospital. This donation means that the team from the fund have the privilege of naming a room at Fisher House, and have opted for Halton Room, after RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire.

The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity and has existed since 1919 to look after serving and former members of the RAF as well as their families. The fund provides a range of services from supporting children growing up on RAF stations, to relationship counselling for RAF couples and respite breaks for RAF families and veterans.

Justine Davy Head of Fundraising at QEHB Charity said: “Thank you to the RAF Benevolent Fund for the generous donation of £10,000 that will allow Fisher House to continue to provide an exceptional service to military patients and their families at their time of need. Fisher House relies entirely on donations to stay open, and we are incredibly grateful to the RAF Benevolent Fund for their support.

“The Halton Room will be used by families from across the country and will provide a calm and comfortable space within walking distance of the hospital and will be a lasting legacy of this donation.”
